Did Hz. Adam come from Paradise with his body or did his spirit come to the world and his spirit was clad in the body in this world?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Hz. Adam and Hz. Hawwa (Eve) were created in Paradise. The bodies of Hz. Adam and Hz. Hawwa in Paradise were the same as the ones when they were sent down to the world. For, they were human beings in both places. The human body is certain.  

“We said: ‘O Adam! dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden; and eat of the bountiful things therein as (where and when) ye will; but approach not this tree, or ye run into harm and transgression.’” (al-Baqara, 2/35)

"…Their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the garden over their bodies..." (al-Araf, 7/22)

It is possible to understand from the verses above that they were in Paradise with their bodies. For, eating and dressing belong to that body.

People will go to Paradise with their spirits and bodies. Many verses of the Quran indicates this fact.
